How can we improve InDesign?

disable "live-update" of cross-references

we are working on large document (about 600 pages) with many cross-references (over 3000).
This leads to a very slow performance and makes working with the document a real test of patience.
It would be great to have an option to temporarily disable the "live-update" of the cross-references!

    Please enable the capability to disable live updates on page cross-references to their InDesign app. This could greatly increase efficiency on several projects.

    This would be of tremendous help to me as well. I work with many docs and have thousands of cross-references. The live update is very, very time consuming - time that I don't have. Hinders more than helps!!

    Same here . . . the amount of time for the live update is exhausting and very frustrating. Please allow an option for this to be disabled.
